Essential Safe Boating Information
Know your Navigation Marks
This is the most important piece of knowledge to keep everyone safe out on the water. Know what side of the markers you are to be on and avoid collisions.
You will see in the image above that the Red or Port marker is kept on your left when heading into port or upstream but when heading the other way so downstream or out to sea, this red port maker is kept on your right side.
HEAD ON - What Side Do I Turn To?!
ALWAYS PASS TO THE RIGHT (STARBOARD) SIDE WHEN SAFE TO DO SO.
If a vessel is coming towards you make a clear and intentional turn to your starboard side to show them your intentions.
